Eggs and Ethics



There are, therefore, important ethical considerations over sustainability – things may be sustainable but does that always make them right?

For instance, the national news was recently reporting that egg supplies are at risk because battery farms are closing as a result of new EU legislation requiring a basic level of welfare.

It could be argued that ‘Free range’ is not sustainable – should we re-open battery farms to make egg production sustainable?
